About me

Gender Female
Industry Education
Occupation Retired teacher
Location Long Island, New York, United States
Introduction My camera, from my first SLR to my current Nikon D810, has always been required gear for my journey through life. I love being outdoors. My other pursuits- boating, beaching, fly-fishing, scuba-diving and traveling fit perfectly with my love of photography. I was born and raised in Brooklyn and moved to Long Island as a young adult. I loved Long Island where there were so many beautiful beaches and parks with abundant wildlife. I recently retired from teaching and moved to Florida. It is another location where photography fits my lifestyle! Check my blogs for the many photos I take and share! See my site, for purchase information and to contact me via email. Thank you.
Interests scuba diving, reading, nature, boating, fishing, photography, travel, genealogy, education, hiking, Theatre, New York City, cooking, gardening, art, enjoying the company of family and friends

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

I usually have a regulator in my mouth, hooked up to an air tank. I can't think about drowning...that's not a good thing when you're 60' below.
